While possibly expensive (not as much as others in DC) for most, this provides the best combination of food and beer in DC given the cost. The Tuesday and Wednesday happy hours are when the beer geeks sneak in and corner the corner downstairs. The pizza, given it’s name, is excellent and the matching with the beers is quite well done. What they have on tap is interesting and broad in style and ABV content. For the 2 hours that HH lasts, if you’re up for it, you can sneak 6-8 beers and still be able to stumble out if you know what you’re doing. It’s not so much a hidden secret but a place that seemingly is ignored due to its out-of-the-way location from most office locations and is annoying to get to if you’re not on foot or living near by. Still, highly recommended (and the staff are friendly, nice, and relatively well-educated in the beer they do serve.. well, some of them)
small restaurant in georgetown. quite a hike to get to from a metro station. very decent selection of beer, all the proper glassware. servers were pretty helpful and friendly. had a rochefort 10 and the mussels pizza, both of which were excellent. they do a good happy hour on tuesdays. for one beer and one personal pizza it was $22, not bad for what you get. pretty casual place with a good atmosphere. was a little crowded when i was there (dinner on a friday evening). definately reccomended if you’re in the area!
Bright, cheerfull and vibrant, great pizza and more importantly a great selection of beers, I had a Red Seal ale and a 2007 Sierra nevada celebration ale and i just didn’t have time to try some more! Well worth a visit
a really neat spot in georgetown. nice selection of beers the menu of bottles weas several pages long. th atmosphere was very nice. we went on a Thursday night and sat downstairs right away. i had the Bosco pizza. it was delicious. worth a visit.
Very cool spot. Possibly the most high-quality list I’ve ever seen, not that I’m extremely well traveled. Choice American and Belgian drafts with some unique picks like Victory Braumeister Pils. A prosciutto and goat cheese pizza was well done - you can create your own which is nice. Atmosphere could have been perfect (to me), like a laid back European pub where you can sit for hours. But it was brutally loud, so much so that for me and my companions it was pointless to even try to talk to each other. And this was a tuesday. I guess this might be an afternoon type of place.
pretty cool spot, in middle of Georgetown. they had 17 drafts, and 5 pages of bottles, I saw that they do beer dinners and this year had one with the brewmaster of Stone, and three others of pretty reputable brewers that I hate to say have forgotten, really good pizza, so it beats your average garb... a great neighborhood and good stop.
My husband and I were spending the night in Georgetown and came across this happy little place. They have a great selection of excellent beers and their taps rotate frequently. I love it when people are not afraid to change up the taps! I highly recommend this place, especially if you like drinking superb beers in a cozy olde english style pub.
Note that you have to enter the pizza restaurant above and walk to the back and down the steps to the basement. It wasn’t terribly obvious to us how to get to the beer bar but after asking someone for directions, we managed.
probably the second best pizza place in dc. it has a very nice selection of beers for a pizza store and the service is decent. a very enjoyable place.

Excellent place. The basement bar feels very European, the beer selection is amazing, especially the bottle and draft Belgians, and the food is quite good. Had a Rochefort 10, Orval and Duchess when I visited, along with a mussels-topped pizza, which was weird but we felt like trying it nonetheless. Very packed crowd though, at around 8-9 on a Saturday so that’s near peak. I will go again in the early afternoon so I can have some space to drink.

Somewhat trendy ambience. A good place for a date. Service seemed attentive and most servers seemed relatively familiar with the beer. Selection is not huge, but definitely belgian weighted with a few on the harder to find end of the spectrum. The food is pretty good. The upsclae pizzas are reasonable in price, other items are on the more expensive side. Located in Georgetown, a great place to end up if you were forced to shop M and wisconsen all day by your s.o. Definitely worth a stop.
Not the biggest, but definitely the best selection of beer in DC. Only quality stuff, and it rotates often. Even if you go in twice a month, you can count on discovering beers that weren’t available the last time. The guys behind the bar really know their stuff and don’t mind answering any questions you might have. Food is great, although the menu is short. I’ve been going to this place regularly since I first discovered it. Haven’t been back to the Brickskeller in many months.
